NZFFA Library

The Farm Forestry library represents the accumulated knowledge and experience of NZ Farm Forestry Association members — practical, high performing farmers and rural landowners, with over 50 years of growing trees for profit (and pleasure) as an integral part of their long term commitment to sustainable land management.

In fact, we're proud to say Association members have been practising integrated land use strategies for decades, long before the concepts of "sustainability" and "environmental sustainability" achieved their current prominence.

Forests and trees provide many environmental benefits to society. These include improved water quality and reduced soil erosion, along with landscape, biodiversity and recreational values. Healthy forests in critical catchments reduce flood damage downstream and therefore reduce the cost to society from such events. By encouraging the use of timber and timber products, these wider environmental values are recognised. Today, trees have an even more vital role to play in offsetting the impacts of climate change.
